Ubuntu 18.04 CheckPoint SNX
CheckPoint's Linux-based SNX client is downloadable from your organisation's VPN portal. The file will be called 'snx_install.sh'.
Once downloaded run 'sudo bash' to become 'root' user.
Change the permissions on the setup script* with 'chmod +x snx_install.sh' and then run it as './snx_install.sh'.
If you run the 'snx' command you may receive a value error "bash: /usr/bin/snx: No such file or directory". This, not entirely clear error, means you need the following dependencies, installed using this command:
- apt install lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 lib32readline7 lib32gcc1 libpam0g:i386 libstdc++5:i386 libx11-6:i386
This will enable SNX to be run and connectivity is done as follows:
- snx -s vpn.portal.domain.com -u username
Disconnecting is done by:
- snx -d
Connecting using CheckPoint .p12 certificates is possible with '-c' parameter. For all other options use '-h' for help.
